Mt. Zion area has had lots of changes in temperature of 17 degree frost killing the plants. We did receive 1 1/2 inches of rain in this area, some areas more. Setting the clocks back, don’t remember the reason for that, think it was in the 70s.

Over at the Robin Sigismund Farm, Belle has been thinking, she figures out why it didn’t snow for Halloween but did get cold enough and snow in north Missouri by dancing a little longer and pointing her paws toward Rockville, it will snow. Speck, Petey and Mutt thinks it is worth trying for treats. Belle’s next problem. Robin is back to making blankets. Got tired after 36 hats. Mabel is busy working up peas and enjoying the little people.

Wanda Rector’s recent visitors were her daughters from Bolivar and Springfield, they just had fun doing nothing.

The Rockville Hand Quilters finished the baby small flowers garden quilt last week. We were happy to finish, but said to see it go. You get attached to some quilts, the owner was very happy with it. You are welcome to visit us each Thursday at the Rockville United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall from 1-4 p.m. Coffee around 2.

John and Julia Snethen have had a busy week with John running his bus route and going to the doctor in Springfield, and Julia going to Knob Noster to care for Theo while his parents worked. Theo went to the beauty shop with Julia on Friday and then visited his grandpa. After that, playing with toys that his mother played with, as did all of their grandchildren, before returning home but didn’t want his nana and papa to leave. Julia has enjoyed being home for a few days but will return this coming week.
